of the world are on the gaza strip for eight days. hamas rained rockets down on israel. the mullas shipped rockets to the sudan, sent them up into egypt before smuggling them in tunnels. israel responded by doing the only thing a responsible nation could do, it defended itself. now the united states needs to show there are consequences for attacking this sovereign nation, consequences for hamas and iran as well. we should have stricter enforcement of sanctions against iran. iran and hamas both need to be held accountable for these attacks. israel are the moral right and legal duty to defend itself from the barbarians, hamas. there is a cease-fire but only until hamas obtains more iranian missiles. hamas is the puppet and iran is the police departmentetteeer. the iranian regime need to go. the iranian people need to do away with the little guy in the desert, ahmadinejad. and that's the way it is. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman's time has expired. the house will be in order. further requests for nute speeches? are there further requests for one-minute speeches? the gent

. israel school and this is to take out the 10,000 missiles that are in gaza. that are capable of reaching jerusalem and tel aviv. in six months from now, they want the option to be able to have a strike and not have to have retaliation. dagen: at what point will israel or would israel said troops and? >> if they cannot get the missile. if they can take them out by air, they far prefer to do that. connell: was shook the u.s. involvement in this piece? what is the u.s. role in all of this? >> anybody trying to broker a deal before that happens will not work. the key to this -- egypt 40 years ago signed a peace treaty for israel. for 40 years they have not shot at each other. this is a different egypt now. it will all be about egypt. egypt has a really tight line to walk. if it somehow joins with the muscle burn brotherhood, america will cut them of their aid. i think egypt tries to walk right down the middle. i do not think they get involved dagen: do so with the president and prime minister was saying her in the last week. >> yes. the egyptian president worries that the way he came to powe
a nuclear weapon? the problem is it leaves israel out of the equation. even though the united states and iran and the obama administration might come to that kind of a deal. forget about the consequences that deal might have, israel isn't going to necessarily like that deal. and if israel perceives it's been isolated and it's on its own they may do something, preemptive strike against iran. while israel can start that war. it can't finish it. and that's why iran did what it did. it wanted to show the united states that whatever happens between israel and iran, don't realize -- don't forget the fact that the united states will be drawn into it, too. i think it was a warning shot from iran. shannon: the white house denied there are secret talks involving valley jarrod. they say it's absolutely not happening. this isn't the first time we heard a report along these lines. what is your sense? >> my sense is we probably are -- maybe not directly negotiating with iran. but there have been suggestions the united states and iran are looking into some kind of diplomacy. one of the first things
between syria and israel, after days of cross border fire, now israel's president sits down with cnn for an exclusive interview about the back and forth and how his country will respond. you will hear what he had to say coming up next. questions? anyone have occasional constipation, diarrhea, gas, bloating? yeah. one phillips' colon health probiotic cap each day helps defend against these digestive issues with three strains of good bacteria. approved!

a victory in their fight against israel and we heard from some of the leadership of that palestinian faction that times of the arab spring have changed the palestinian/israeli conflict. we expect that to have a profound impact on the situation here in gaza and across the region. they are certainly trying to spin this in a way where to their people they are coming out victorious and prepared for any possible confrontation down the road. tinge ordinary people here in gaza when you speak to them as we have throughout the course of the day have been telling us without a comprehensive solution that history is deemed to repeat itself. without a solution to end the problems of the israeli palestinian conflict, particularly here in gaza, expect it to be another round of violence somewhere on the horizon. >> ayman, thank you, reporting from gaza. martin fletcher is standing by now in tel aviv. what's the feeling there today 20 hours after the cease-fire? are people feeling good about this? describe that. >> reporter: to be honest, alex, i don't think people are feeling too bad about it. i think they
and israel? >> no one knows for sure. but i think it will hold for a while. hamas got what they wanted, worldwide recognition. they have some restrictions removed from the blockade. they will be able to smuggle arms and hunitions -- munitions in as they have always done, despite the fact the egyptians are trying to do something about it. israeli defeated hamasalcy military capability, firing 1500 rockets and defeating 88% of those coming into population centers. so i think there is something there for erch. i think it will hold. the real winner is the iranian, as they are watching this unfold and influence in it. >> shannon: behind what is so much of what is happening there, general, thank you so much. >> good sigh you. >> shannon: fox news has confirmed that peter king will step down as the house homeland security committee. the republican representative has chaired that committee for 7 years. republicans have imposed a six-year limit for most committee chairs. king got a waiver and he is wrapping up list seventh year. it is not clear who will replace him in january of 2013. some spec
and that is also up from last year. >> the cease-fire is holding between god and israel. the two sides are meeting with officials today and discuss and possibly opening and border crossings. the cease- fire brokered last week as the president pushed for the cease-fire and secretary hillary clinton and visited the region. troops were gathering in the gaza border for a possible ground invasion. this started when moss militants fired rockets rockets into israel and israel reach tolerate it retaliated with rocket airstrikes. the cease-fire is holding for now. >> it is seven 05 a.m. and we'll be back in just a couple of minutes. the bases thig story is the fog. we will be right back. sleep train has your ticket to tempur-pedic. experience the pressure-relieving comfort of tempur-pedic, and sleep risk-free with sleep train's 100-day money back guarantee. get 36 months interest-free financing: no down, and no interest for 3 years. plus, get free same-day delivery. sleep train's 100-day money back guarantee, interest-free financing, and free delivery? that's the ticket! sleep train's ticket to tempur-pedi
that iran does not a nuclear weapon. israel is our best friend. we need to protect israel. yes, obviously i could if it were in the strategic best interest of the country and the strategic best interest of israel, which is often the strategic best interest of the country. we need to keep iran from a nuclear weapon, but we need to do everything -- sanctions seem to be working now. when the best things is that we have involved other nations in basically forcing iran to allow people to come and. >> just to clarify, i think i heard you say that under extreme circumstances you could a vote to support israel in going to war against iran. >> it would be extreme circumstances. we need to do everything we can, and there are lots of things we can do even apart from sanctions. this goes back to being nimble and strategic in terms of how we deal with this piece in question. >> i have supported israel for a long time. i will continue to support israel. our intel -- i have said, i have doubts about it. israel does not get to make a mistake. is a fatal mistake for the nation of israel if they except accep
because israel is a one bomb count country. hi, clifford, what do you mean by a one bomb country? >> people don't realize how small israel is, it's smaller than djabouti and the muslim countries around it are 600 times its size with about 60 times the population. what's been said by iranian rulers, it would take actually one bomb, one bomb to wipe out the entire country and if they did that and israel rehe al yates, more than a billion muslims left, why not. >> i've heard that israel is the size of new jersey and carries so much weight in the world, but it's that small. so what do you make of in cease-fire? does this accomplish anything? >> the cease-fire does accomplish something. it was important for israel to get rid of the iranian supplied longer range missiles that hamas it. the m-75's, reach more than half the population, it could reach from gaza, tel aviv, jerusalem, some came pretty close to hitting those places and they had to get rid of those and by the way, should there be a conflict in the next few, six, eight months between israel and iran, it was important for israe
from within his government to repair strained israeli-u.s. ties. hours after obama's victory, israel's deputy prime minister said -- later in the day, netanyahu staged a news conference to publicly congratulate obama on his win. >> i want to congratulate president obama's re-election. i think the united states of america demonstrated what it is the greatest democracy on earth. the security relationship between the u.s. and israel is rock-solid. i look forward to working with president obama to further strengthen this relationship and advance our goals of peace and security. >> israeli prime minister netanyahu followed up his comments with a personal telephone call to obama on thursday. one of the first tests of obama's post-election middle east form policy will come this month as the palestinian authority seeks non member status at the united nations, which the u.s. forcefully opposed last year. the move would grant palestinians recognition at bodies like the international criminal court, where they could potentially bring cases against israel. if approved, the move could trigger a u
by the american people. they will go forward. >> what about israel in this scenario? what are they going to do as the supreme leaders meet in tehran? >> israel has confidence that iran is not fair minded and is a predator state. and, therefore, no matter how long this is dragged out, iran will get more and more concessions before it becomes impossible. for example, one of the concessions i'm told is israel wants the united states to agree that a third party killed iranian nuclear scientist. they're looking for us to endorse their law gambit against israel. they want us on their side against israel. >> boy, i think this is pretty farfetched -- >> it is. it is farfetched, larry. >> john bachelor, thank you very much, my friend. hope to see you soon on the radio. >>> so, folks, the stock market slump continues on wall street. since president obama was re-elected the dow's lost about 450 points. my next guest says put fiscal cliff fears to bed because a deal will be reached. here now is ken hebner of capital growth management. ken, as always, it's great to see you. all right. i'll put the fiscal c
difficult. >> israel is concerned that palestinians will be eligible to join the international criminal court. press charges of human rights violations. in the words of an israeli official, the daniel could be worse than rockets from gaza. the u.s. reportedly asked israel not to impose harsh sanctions against the palestinian authority. >> they can get pieces of paper from the-up. but they are not going move forward and not going to make the palestinian statehood more real. >> of now, more than two-third member countries recognize palestine. the vote in favor of, the nonmember statehood is expected to be overwhelming. supports include france, china and india. bret? >> bret: david lee miller, in jerusalem. thank you. >>> still ahead -- hillary clinton is on her way out. we look at her time at state. first, are clinton's former senate colleagues willing to use the nuclear option? if we want to improve our schools... ... what should we invest in? maybe new buildings? what about updated equipment? they can help, but recent research shows... ... nothing transforms schools like investing in ad
today besides that. today the u.s. and israel got outvoted 138-9 on a vote to grant palestinians sort of junior nation status at the u.n. palestine is not officially a country so they're not officially a member of the u.n. they officially get to be observers of what happens at the u.n. this was a symbolic stamp of international approval for the political legitimacy of the palestinians. it may not have much practical impact, but politically speaking, it was the u.s. and israel that were desperately trying to have this vote today not happen. so that we would not to be shown to be so isolated in the world in terms of our country's perspective and the israeli perspective on this issue. the u.s. knew that the vote would look this lopsided which is why we did not want the vote to happen, but it happened anyway and it happened just like we knew it would. now what? also on your plate, after president obama took his big historic trip to burma this month, the first time a u.s. president has ever visited burma, the burmese government today attacked their own people using what is being described
invoice. >> shepard: the civil war in syria has now spread for whoever brief a time to israel, america's closest ally in the middle east. israeli military leaders say they scored a direct hit on a army vehicle after syrian mortar landed in israeli military. israeli commander fired a warning shot yesterday after the first shell landed near an israeli military post in the golan heights. that's the first time they fired into syria in almost 40 years. they suspect this is a one-time thing and that the message will be clear from israel they go on to say this could be the start of something more dangerous. leland leland vittert back from the border live in jerusalem this evening. leland. >> shep, the israelis have shown a lot of restraint so far and things are relatively calm. there has been no more cross border shelling overnight. israelis are very firm in their resolve and warn of dire consequences of these kinds of attacks continue and in this part of the world. the line between a war of words and a war with real bullets is awfully thin. you are looking at one of the syrian villages where
between palestine and israel. the truce is still on this morning and there are no reports of any new violent attacks. tens of thousands returned to class this morning after eight days of fighting. a un spokesman said they spent their first day back talking about their fears and experiences before the cease fire. >>> the body of a former palestine leader will be exhumid on tuesday. they will study the remains as part of an ongoing investigation into his death. he died in november of 2004 after suddenly falling ill. supporters have long said that israel successfully carried out a scheme to poison him. israel has denied the allegations. he will be exhumed and buried again with military honors. >> iran accusing the united states of trying to stir up trouble. in letters to the un they claim american ships carrying out illegal acts in the gulf. they also claim that the outs has ignored radio warnings and flown into iran air space. so far the white house has commented. >> a penny more for a mile. that's what you will get under the new standard mile rate when is you file your taxes, the ir
. their relationship goes back years and years and years. in fact, i was reading one of the israeli newspapers. israel today ran no fewer than four opinion pieces just yesterday endorsing romney. what happens now, christiane, in this relationship between netanyahu and obama? >> well, what happens now is that obama is the president of the united states. netanyahu is the prime minister of israel. and they have to work together. these are two countries which stand side by side. there in no doubt in anybody's mind that the united states stands firmly for the security of israel, the intercommunity knows. it yes, there has been a cool relationship between netanyahu and obama, however netanyahu did congratulate the president this morning and said the strategic reliance between israel and the u.s. is stronger than ever. i will continue to work with president obama in order to assure the interests that are vital to the security of the citizens of israel. so, again, no doubt where the united states stands the strong security and protection of israel. the real issue of course that has divided them, one, iran. a
. a second system arrives by tonight. >> new, just moments ago israel announced its defense system shot down a palestine rocket. >> okay. >> reporter: a reporter is in gaza for cnn. they are trying to stay safe. just a couple hours ago she posted on facebook a message that said explosions every few minutes, it just won't stop. israel launched two hundred air strikes overnight. the palestine responded by firing five hundred rocket this is week including an unprecedented attack aimed at the jerusalem. a cease fire seems increasingly unlikely. >>> the threat of a war in the middle east is frightening people here. a group of palestine supporters held a peace rally. locals with loved ones over there say the identifying will continue to escalate. >> they are afraid because you know all the -- all the bedrooms have all these windows. they are afraid everything will fall on them. >> it's a constant in the back of your mind fear that there is going to be something that will happen. there will be an attack. >> the president called on both israel and egypt in the homes of working together to dees
gauze why and israel and playing out in egypt. bring us up to speed. the rebels made some advancements. >> the rebels have scored some successes. they have captured a couple of rather small but still significant military installations, one little air base, they got a tank out of it, they destroyed a couple of helicopters, destroyed another couple of tanks that was seen -- because it was very close to damascus, seen as a major victory for them. moreover, moreover they changed their strategy. their strategy of trying to go into a major city, take it, and hold it. and they get pulverized in bombing campaigns that took so much of a toll on the civilian population. going right after the military, the military centers in and doing so, they're gaining arms. and expertise. there are more people that are joining them, the syrian military still a formidable force and the rebels probably not a match for them toe to toe but gaining strength. >> we know the geography, turkey to the north, turkey considering putting missiles on the border now? >> they're asking nato to consider it. they're sending a
by -- met by some tough language from the security council. not from the government, israel or anyone. it was the security council under the charter of the united nations that put that pressure. of course we know that this system worked extremely well. it was 100% performance as a matter of fact. it's not bad for any u.n. organization to get the task and then i think it's probably the only one which succeeded to make it 100% performance. so the -- that means that both destruction capabilities and the monetary capabilities were forcefully placed. so everything looked shiny and fine until the u.s. government -- it was in spring of 1997, through madeline albright made the statement at george mason university, well, it looks like sanctions are -- disarmament is going well. if it goes well we can still not lift the sanctions which was a condition under the security council. sanctions -- so we can't lift the sanctions until saddam hussein is removed. so that came my obsession with the regime change. that, of course, destroyed in the sense the institution and operations. so i think that expe
this panel is syria. but what is happening in israel as we gather here this week? these are the questions of our time. these are the challenges of our generation and. that, i think, is one of the great benefits of opportunities like halifax, to have a very in- depth discussion on how we got as a community -- a community of democracies, a community of countries that care, are compassionate, and are able to do something to stop the slaughter of innocent civilians. >> there were many who say we need to have more young emerging democracies that need to be stepping up to the plate and taking on more of your responsibilities. indonesia, india, brazil, turkey, south africa, but at the same time, we also hear the statements made that as they get involved and should step up to the plate in helping to nurture democracy come to protest human rights, but that they also have to make sure there roadhouses in order. what are your thoughts on that? >> certainly, more nations now have their role to play. definitely, in our case, we're trying to play a role based on our experience. as you might know, our c
to be. that is a matter between israel and the palestinians, and the u.s. can nudge and between and all of that. but in the end, if netanyahu and the palestinians are not in the position to bring resolution to this, then at it is not really going to be something that president obama can do. certainly something he would like very much to do. netanyahu -- i mean, now that the election is over, i think we will see prime minister netanyahu have a recalculation of the relationship with obama and how it has to go forward. it has not been close in the previous four years. it has been pragmatic and grudgingly accepting a reality on both sides, but there is an opportunity for that to change. host: do you have thoughts on that, scott? guest: just a follow-up. netanyahu had a personal relationship with romney and was a very secret about who he wanted to win the election and that was not president obama, who applied quite a bit of pressure to israel in his first term to try to secure a peace deal called israel settlements in the west bank. israel felt sort of hard-done by a lot of this bit of the a
with israel and palestine. possible actions against iran and may be pulling us in. guest: that has been a mess for a long time and we should not take sides. it would be best for that region. i don't believe in getting involved. has been created by to many outsiders interfering. -- that doesn't make a lot of sense. what threat are the palestinians? they are living in total poverty. sure, there are going to be militants. what is the reason? they have been held in bondage for decades. i think we should not be involved. eventually is real and not be able to depend on the united states -- eventually israel will not be able to depend on the united states. it makes no sense to do that. that is what they are anxious for us to do. what happens when we go broke and when it is acknowledged and we cannot afford to feed ourselves? our military is going to go home. we will not be there to take care of israel. all the people we have offended around the world, they are going to gang up on us and it will not be good for israel because we will not be capable of providing protection. host: this is the front page
